Everybody wants something extraordinary for their special day. The
Rev. Darrell Best of Shelbyville, Illinois now offers a new option: a wedding on wheels
Reverend Best had his 1942 American La France firetruck converted into a mobile chapel on a recent edition of Country Music Television’s “Trick My Truck”. The truck now has real stained glass windows, a functioning pipe organ, and two wooden pews.
Best recently took his portable church to the Illinois State Fair,
where couples paid a fee of $100 dollars to get married on the truck.
“It fits me, the bride, the groom, the best man and the maid of honor,”
said Best. “It gets a little crowded, but it works.”
Best said that he decided to convert the truck
to give people without a church of their own to have a special wedding
service. Non-Illinois residents aren’t left out, either; for $2 per
mile plus a $200 fee, he will drive the church anywhere you like.
We hope it is only a matter of time until the mobile chapel business becomes its own fleet!
